3D guns set to print Wedensday

Local News

A company called “Defense Distributed” can officially release plans for 3D printed guns on Wednesday. 

Representatives say even the 3D printed AR-15 style rifles, free of charge, online. 

The non-profit settled a lawsuit  with the federal government in April to be allowed to give away the designs, 

But some states are suing to keep it from happening. And even the President is questioning if it makes sense or not. 

President Trump tweeted: “I am looking into 3D plastic guns being sold to the public. Already spoke to the NRA,… Doesn’t seem to make much sense.” 

Democrats on Capitol Hill introduced legislation to stop the online publication. 

“There should be nothing partisan about this.  Gun dealers, the NRA, please join us,” says Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal. 

However, the lawsuit may already be too late.
